What’s Coming to Shudder for ‘Halfway to Halloween’ Month

April has long been celebrated by horror fans as the halfway point to Halloween, and this year Shudder makes it official with the launch of Halfway to Halloween Month. Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, will offer its biggest month of non-October programming ever, at a time when many people are turning to streaming to help entertain them while they’re social distancing and quarantining.

Original and Exclusive Series

Cursed Films — a five-part documentary series from writer/director Jay Cheel (How to Build a Time Machine) which explores the myths and legends behind some of Hollywood’s notoriously “cursed” horror film productions. From plane accidents and bombings during the making of The Omen, to the rumored use of real human skeletons on the set of Poltergeist, these stories are legendary… but what’s real and what’s myth? 

The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs — Season 2

Each weekly double feature will premiere on the “Shudder TV” feed Fridays at 9pm ET / 6pm PT, beginning April 24 and concluding on Friday, June 26.
